Humber Party: 1959 Humber Super Snipe
Most mumblers will agree that complex words and alliteration give them the biggest problem with others understanding their mumbling…and most Humber owners will agree that nobody understands them. Humber ownership is an interesting club, the automotive equivalent to living inside a geodesic dome, but that shouldn’t stop you from considering one of these Rootes Group design and built classics. Find this 1959 Humber Super Snipe offered for $7500 CAD ($5525 USD) in Maple Ridge, BC, Canada via craigslist. Tip from Erik202.

Somehow it is fitting that you were away on a snipe hunt during the big switch.
There was a retired engineer from Boeing in the Alfa club years ago that was also into Humbers. The other old guys in the club used to call it the Humbler when he drove it to club meetings.
Excellent car to add to a collection. Well-appointed, comfortable, good cruiser and not likely to bump into another one.
Very nice. Rare as hell in North America. A car with one of the coolest names in all of autodom!
Should have named it Rootes 66……!
Great name. Great interior (doesn’t that sofa-like bench look comfy?), most terrifying car to drive on a racetrack ever. I speak from experience.
